If you take a look at the Sprint BlackBerry Pearl spec sheet you will notice that Sprint TV is one of the exclusive applications that will be offered on the device. Sprint TV is one of Sprint’s Power Entertainment options that allows you to watch live TV with full motion video on your mobile device.
I’ve always thought that streaming video on a BlackBerry would be a huge hit in a consumer model and I hope that the Verizon model of the BlackBerry 8130 has V Cast. I will so be signing up for ESPN MobileTV if they do.
I know that Mobile ESPN failed miserably, however, I believe that it was because people didn’t want to buy devices specifically for ESPN, but, rather a service available to them on their existing media phones.
